Mass Casualty Drill On Same Day As Waco Explosion

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


North Hills Hospital is proud to be hosting one of the largest emergency preparedness drills ever held in the state of Texas this week. We will be partnering with the North Central Texas Trauma Regional Advisory Council (NCTTRAC) and first responders from throughout North Texas to test our equipment and processes so that when a real disaster happens, we’re all ready to respond.

This drill is even timelier in the wake of the bombings at Monday’s Boston Marathon. Our prayers go out to the victims involved, and we are proud of the first responders – EMS, fire, police, race workers, and hospital staff - who so bravely cared for the injured.

If you live near North Hills Hospital, you will see a lot of activity in our parking lots over the next three days as the NCTTRAC sets up a mobile 140-bed hospital, along with dozens of ambulances, several AMBUS (multi-patient ambulances), and helicopters. This is only a drill and will simulate a hospital evacuation, something that might be necessary in the event of a tornado, hurricane, earthquake, or prolonged power failure.

This hospital is only 81 miles from West, Texas where the fertilizer plant explosion occured and mass casualties have happened.   Coincidence?  -Mort

      Come on. Don’t get ridiculous. All that does is hurt the REAL coincidences to think about.

      NCTTRAC sets up a mobile 140-bed hospital

      They are probably practicing/setting up for the H7N9 flu coming to you soon from China. So far 82 cases that ended up in the hospital and 17 deaths. This is going to be a disaster. That is the info China is letting out; so it’s probably much worse than we are led to believe.

      I live 14 miles from this place. They say the air quality if fine, but I’m feeling it. Very sensitive to chemicals!

      • morris adams

        then you’re never gonna make it!! you better start huffing clorox to try and build up a lil tolerance! — I’ve never ever ever believed in coincidence anyway, now I’m even more skeert! I’m bout done with these ”convenient” drill sites. Texas is about 250k square miles and they picked a spot an hour away???? and remember FEMA posting sign on door in NY saying closed due to weather, during hurricane sandy?? OMFG!! this is over my head.

      from the North Hills link, damage control?

      Update on the drill (posted 4/18): Due to the events in West, Texas last night, North Hills Hospital and the NCTTRAC have chosen to cancel today’s emergency preparedness drill. Many of the same resources planned for the drill have already deployed to West to help care for the victims down there.

      Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims, loved ones, and first responders affected by this terrible tragedy.

    • hongryhawg

      Wasn’t there a Mass Casualty Drill being held near Sandy Hook Elementary School the day of the Sandy Hook massacre? Coincidence?

    • greenghost

      Coincidence sure its a Coincidence would the gov. tell a fib?

      • silenced

        hmm i work at a chemical plant….maybe I should call off next couple days

    • Ericzipp

      There are many hospitals much closer to West. Some have a larger capacity than at the at the drill. It probably took resources away from the emergency rescue resources since it was a joint effort of area medical staff. Why do you sometimes post stupid stuff? Haven’t you heard the story of the boy who cried wolf. You totally kill your creditability by posting this garbage.

      • Ahura Madza

        That’s right Eric, you do loose some credibility because Mort posted this garbage!!.

    • Ozzie_Thinker

      Take a survey of the various drills of this nature. If, by it’s profile, it is the only to suit the Texas ‘accident’ in 10 years, it is not a coincidence. If there are regularly drills of this type staged around the country, it may be a coincidence and likely is a coincidence.

    • Room With a View

      When are you people gonna grow a brain? How many coincidences do you need to join the dots and see that these are not co-incidences???????. How come all these drills are planned at the same time these occurences happen?????? Dang, 2013 is the year of co-incidences. I want to believe that you americans are not blind and stupid, but you are making it really hard. Next thing, you will be saying FEMA is for your own good…..till you get inside that it is. You have been warned for months that these things are coming upon you, and you still don’t believe your enemy is your own government. Because that is what your government does best. ATTACK, ATTACK, ATTACK. Now that they have the superpowers of China and Russia breathing down their necks, they are turning on YOU, THE PEOPLE. People who have been dumbed down and lazy, consuming all the GMO’s, chemtrailed for years and fed lies from CNN and Fox. This is a walk in the park for them, as long as the morons keep believing that these events actually happened spontaneously. Sandy Hook – drill, 9/11 drill. boston – drill, Texas – drill. DUH! They have been in the pipeline for years. Wait till the J Edgar Hoover dam bursts. Then maybe it will be too late, or will I log on and find someone posting some lame excuse. I don’t even know why I care.

        Well said!. But the cannot “grow” a brain because they have one and it was poisoned!. They need detox this brain and use the portion that can work to figure out these things. Firstly, they need to understand they have been poisoned (ie fluoride, GMOs, Chemtrails, aspartame etc), then they need to look back at the events from a different perspective (non MSN). After some time, they will develop the right sense to detect the BS that is going on. :wink:

        room w/ view,

        well said. how many chem plants are there in the nation? then to have the WACO one blow on almost the same day as the WACO anniversary? statistically- the probabilities of such a combination occurring is incredibly low as to rule any ‘coincidence’. and further- intersecting with the “patriots” meme being reenacted full force in Boston?

        why isnt Jonestown and all the other ‘pats’ all over this? its big, and together w/ Boston, its HUGE. great find Mort. Good job & kudos !!!

    • TruthandFreedom

      Whenever you hear of a drill/training for an event that has a possibilty of deaths and involves the government, run and get away as fast as you can! WTC, 9/11, Oklahoma City Bombing, Colorado theater, Sandyhook, WACO Texas, and Boston Bombing all have one thing in common… ie all were DRILLS that magically happened? Really? This much coincidence??? DHS, DOJ, FBI, TSA,CIA all need to be cosed down!!! These are nothing more than POLICE STATE/TERRORIST organizatins killing American people!

      The state of Utah has been ramping up their Mass Casualty Drills, under the guise of Earthquake Preparedness. Fake blood, crisis actors, police, state and federal agencies, FEMA shelters, first responders, school evacuations – you name it.

      There’s NO way the NSA would build a multi-Billion dollar Spy Center in an unstable geological area.

      Could all be a prep and conditioning for a future false flag, and as we’ve just seen in Boston, the roll-out of the Police State and Martial Law.
